We had an amazing time in Surja Hotel. We stayed there for 5 night in January and also booked the Camel Safari in the Hotel, which was one of the highlights of our whole India travel. Yogi and his team try really the best to make your stay unforgettable. Our room was really clean and spacious, and the rooms with...

We felt a bit mixed about this place, though positive overall. The location in the fort wall is fabulous (although we later found out that it’s not good for the fort for so many people to be staying in the fort as it’s not equipped to cope with the amount of water being used – if you do stay within...

My wife and I stayed several nights in Surja Hotel's Maharaja room in early January, and I would absolutely recommend it to anybody who is interested in a stay inside Jaisalmer Fort. The view from both the room and the rooftop restaurant/lounge is amazing, and the hotel owners were extremely kind and helpful. There was zero pressure to book a...

When we checked in the Maharaja room, I was so impressed with the amazing city view from the balcony in our room. The balcony is small but they put cushion and pillow on it and made it quiet romantic. The direction is perfect to see the sunrise. The internet works well and the hot water is pretty decent once you...

Reviewed 22 January 2013

This place has an amazing rooftop restaurant with views looking over the city and desert. A total steal for a room inside the fort. The owner Raj is extremely accommodating - from arranging a camel safari to taking me around the city on his motorcycle. I felt extremely comfortable here as a solo female traveler. Good restaurant. Free wifi.

Surja is a nice place to stay with a wonderful owner in Raj and some good service. He responds to the emails quickly and is always available on phone. The pick up from the railway station was prompt (and free) and the welcome tea was really good. Raj was helpful in answering any questions and was very gentle and polite....
